They've got balls
Ben and Jerry have just released their latest mouth-watering concoction....Schweddy Balls.
To celebrate the talented writers, crew and actors behind arguably television’s funniest television program, today, Ben & Jerry’s launched its newest limited-batch flavor, Schweddy Balls. The flavor is an ode to the classic “Saturday Night Live” sketch starring Ana Gasteyer and Molly Shannon, as hosts of the “Delicious Dish,” a National Public Radio program parody, along with Alec Baldwin as Pete Schweddy, the fictional owner of Season’s Eatings Bakery.
The flavor, available nationwide, features Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum and is loaded with fudge covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls.
And what does Pete Scheddy himself, Alec Baldwin, have to say about this?
“For a long time, I thought that ‘Here Lies Pete Schweddy’ would end up on my tombstone,” said Baldwin. “Now, thanks to Ben & Jerry's, the goodness of the Schweddy family recipe won't go with me to the great beyond.”
It sounds like Alec is in a much better mood than he was earlier this week when he tweeted this from Starbucks...
He has a point, some Barista's can be a little bitchy.
Regardless, the "Schweddy Balls" sketch is one of the funniest SNL has ever done. Here is just a taste...
"There's no beating my balls."
